Till the end of 2020, Farhan Akhtar has no time to even give a thought to Don 3. Farhan a long while back had excitedly announced that he is working on Don 3. But while the movie’s script was being worked upon, its cast was also being discussed upon in public. As latest reports arrive, there is a conclusion, that Shah Rukh Khan, who has been involved with the project since the start, is not too keen to work on the movie.
And now a new report on The Asian Age claims that post-Shah Rukh Khan’s exit, Farhan Akhtar also is not very keen on working towards the film. This disinterest of his could also be attributed to his schedule, shooting for Toofan, The Sky Is Pink promotions and music tours. An industry source shared with The Asian Age,
“These stories about this and the other actors taking over the Don baton are so out of line. Farhan Akhtar (also the director of the Don series) has no script, not even an idea for a plot to do another film. He’s busy with his acting and music career. He hasn’t directed any film for the last nine years. His last directorial was Don 2 in 2011. It looks like the Don series is dead”
Moreover, a close-director friend of Farhan also happens to confirm the news.
“I don’t see any inclination in Farhan to direct a film at this point of his life. Right now he’s busy prepping for the role of his lifetime as a boxer in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Toofan. That will keep him busy this year and most of 2020. Before that, he has just completed another acting role in Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink. Where do you see direction fitting into his schedule?”
When Farhan’s partner Ritesh Sidwani was contacted to get a confirmation about the same, he too maintained a silent stand. Does this silence mean that the future of Don 3 is in hanging for an indefinite amount of time?
